I was so happy to visit my hometown cafe this morning for breakfast with my husband! Been traveling a lot for work lately. Anything Steve makes is wonderful; plenty of options and they also have fresh baked bakery items available. Cory and the team provide great service; always feels like home when I'm there :)

This small town dinner is great for a quick friendly breakfast. Get there early and visit with the local seniors from Balsam Lake. The dinner is only open until 2:00. They serve breakfast and dinner.

We come here for breakfast every now & then & the food is alway very good. The prices are decent. This is a tiny cafe that I believe is not open all the time. I'm not sure if they even serve anything other than breakfast, but they may. Friendly service. I will be back for breakfast again.
